In the present work, a commercial CFD software package, FLUENT, was used to develop a three-dimensional model of pusher-type billet reheating furnace for the second high speed wire rod plant of XiangTan Iron and steel Co. Ltd. The purpose of the study was to gain a better understanding of the gas flow and velocity and pressure distribution in the furnace. The results show that the numerical results are in agreement with the practice and the characteristics of the furnace configuration. The CFD model can be used to improve the performance and structure by analyzing and studying the behavior of the reheating furnace.
